6. So, who would a federal court recognize as having standing?
Anyone who was illegally spied on would have to know that they were illegally spied on. And without that knowledge, the court wouldn't recognize a cause of action. And of course, there would be the question of damages. If the FBI is just casually dipping into your life from time to time, in the United States as currently constituted, what's the harm? If you haven't done anything wrong, blah, blah, blah. The Fourth Amendment is for just for losers anymore.
